Birla Carbon
This is a Past Webinar

Are you missing out on the ultimate end performance you could achieve with your carbon black pigments? Inadequate dispersion will result in lower blackness, weaker blue tone, and poor pigment stability in your paint and coating formulations. Investing in a high-end carbon black pigment or adding more pigment won’t always help you. You need to get back to the basics – the fundamentals of dispersion for carbon black.

Join the experts at Birla Carbon at this upcoming webinar to learn the fundamental principles for the dispersion of carbon black. By optimizing your dispersion techniques and formulations, you can maximize your coatings’ performance and reduce production costs. Find out how to properly disperse carbon black and evaluate degree of dispersion to balance performance and costs for carbon black applications. Discover how different milling equipment and formulation adjustments may be required to reach desired levels of performance.
